COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale™ With a little creative curiosity, we used spent bourbon casks, fresh from decanting, and filled them with our very own Kentucky Ale. From barrels that once held the finest bourbons of Kentucky, we present Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale, a smooth, golden elixir unlike any other. Subtle yet familiar flavors of vanilla and oak are imparted to this special ale as it rests in the charred barrel. We attribute this to what the bourbon maker calls the “angel’s share”. Elegantly smooth and modestly carbonated, Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale is a fine sipping ale with the distinctive nose of a well-crafted Kentucky bourbon.

Thin head which dissipates quickly. Vanilla, butterscotch and bourbonin the aroma. Very sweet smelling. Color is a bright orange. Smooth and buttery flavor. Lite bourbon notes late swallow. Pretty thin body. I do not like the taste of butter and therefore I am not a fan of this brew. Little bit of zippy dryness on the tongue. FInishes buttery. Butter, butter and more butter. Not a fan.

hopscotch (9555) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 1, 2008
Bottle… DLD’08… Lightly hazy golden ale with a small, creamy, white head. Good retention. The aroma is of toffee and bourbon with suggestions of burned rubber and resin… the apparent olfactory theme of the day. Light-bodied and fizzy. Perfectly balanced, but bland and mostly flavorless… with the lone exception being a miniscule hint of bourbon. Crisp, clean, thin finish.

daknole (9443) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - APR 23, 2008
Bottle, thanks Acknud! Well this is ann intersting brew. The aroma and flavors of Bourbon hit immediately. The beer also tastes of bourbon...too much honestly. It is a very bright and bold amber color with no head. Carbonation is light. Flavor of beer is lost in the Bourbon. Decent brew.

Ungstrup (29850) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 20, 2008
Bottled. A golden beer with a thin beige head. The aroma is sweet malty with primary notes of caramel. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of caramel and a light touch of bourbon.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - APR 14, 2008
Pours amber with a thin white head. Smells of bourbon and some tangy malt. Tastes like an amber ale a small shot of bourbon was dumped into. Not as bad as it sounds but not one I want to revisit anytime soon.

Part 2 of my cellar clean out which was only 2 bottles. The Danish would be proud of me. This beer fucking sucks. I dont know what else to say. Tastes like butter and bourbon. Not a good combination. I retched this one up after I drank some.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - APR 6, 2008
Bottle from Acknud. Thanks! Pours a thick, viscous gloden graham yellow (R) like a sublte glass of cognac. Aroma is a light Dramboue, wonderfully subtle without the sinus-clearing alcohol rush. Flavors of coconut and butterscotch dominate the first few tastes, but as the beverage warms the bourbon and oak chips become more and more evident. Thin mouthfeel but the impression is of slick, diluted oil. A very nice accompaniment to Willie and Merle’s "Pancho and Lefty" and pettin’ my Buster Boy.
